How Can I Borrow on a Prepaid Debit Card?

Research prepaid debit cards and look for those that allow you to borrow more than you deposit onto the card. Not all debit cards have this feature, so shop around.

Obtain a list of fees from the prepaid debit card company you choose before you apply. You may have to pay start-up and monthly fees, reload charges, overdraft costs to borrow over your limit and a fee to receive a statement. Other fees, such as those for each transaction, may be involved with the use of the card.

Apply for a prepaid debit card from a company, such as AccountNow, that allows you to spend more than your deposit limit. Ask the company for the amount that you can use.

Keep track of how much you spend over your limit to ensure that your card is not rejected for future purchases.

Load enough money onto your prepaid debit card to repay the amount that you borrowed and enough for more purchases. Some companies take monthly payments from your deposit, so you do not have to pay it back all at once.
